If you love soft colours and nature-inspired motifs combined with repurposed furniture, vintage decor is the perfect one for you. Vintage is one of the easiest style to achieve in your home, because you could use existing pieces of furniture, accessories or details to incorporate into the decor. Furthermore, there are so many different ideas you could include into your home decoration, and turn it into a true shabby chic place.

1. Wooden Chest

Vintage décor is all about experimenting and improvisation. A distressed coffee table or desk will mix up perfectly in the living room nook with a chipped paint armoire and the old wooden armchair. Old chairs can easily be turned into a brand new piece of furniture, if you only paint them in some bright colour such as orange, red or sky blue. Put them together with an eggshell painted wooden table, and you will have the perfect vintage furniture for your dining room.
